He cut a casual figure in black-and-white striped boardshorts and a blue graphic T-shirt, which he wore underneath a smart blue zip-up jacket.
Harry kept comfortable in a pair of black Old Skool Vans and carried a yellow Tower Records carrier bag, which appeared to have Guinness in it.
The former One Direction star flashed a slight smile as he walked down the steps towards the bathing spot, followed closely behind by Olivia, 28.
Another picture showed Harry shirtless with an aquamarine towel draped over his shoulder as he got ready to enjoy a quick swim amid the balmy weather.

Harry and his girlfriend Olivia were joined by Bono’s 30-year-old daughter Eve Hewson for the outing, according to Goss.
The loved-up couple were earlier spotted strolling around Dublin city centre and enjoying a bite to eat at SOLE Seafood & Grill restaurant on Monday.
Harry’s latest low-key outing came the day before Harry is set to take to the stage at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium on Wednesday for his only Love On Tour show in Ireland.

Harry has recently been compared to late Queen star Freddie Mercury after his ‘mesmerising’ string of gigs.
He has been wowing audiences across the world with his Love On Tour show – with former One Direction bandmate Niall Horan among the faces in the crowd at his London show on Sunday.
While Niall grabbed the attention of onlookers in the corporate box, it was Harry who wowed his fans as he put on an incredible show.
Some concertgoers compared him to music legend Freddie, who was known for his flamboyant performances before his tragic death in 1991.
Those present said that Harry had his own ‘Freddie Mercury moment’, referencing the singer’s most famous show at Live Aid in 1985 where he had an unforgettable back and forth with the crowd.
A video from the concert shared by fans showed the hitmaker showing off his vocal range as he imitated the famous moment, with fans singing back to him just as they did with Freddie at Live Aid.
Some fans even believe that Harry’s meteoric rise as a solo popstar has eclipsed his former boyband’s level of fame and is now even bigger than One Direction ever was.
As well as the video, a fan at the show explained what was happening at the time: ‘He was having his ‘Freddie Mercury at Live Aid’ moment, with the whole of Wembley Stadium in his hands and singing back his work. You could see how moved he was.’

Meanwhile another added: ‘I have been fortunate to have lived long enough to experience both Freddie and Harry. I believe Harry would never compare himself to Freddie.
‘However, they both have a way of mesmerizing an audience and leaving us hanging on the edge of our seats to see what they’ll do next.’
One impressed member of the crowd was Niall, who showed up to support his former bandmate.
The Irish singer, was seen dancing and bopping along as he was filmed positively beaming as his friend belted out 2011’s What Makes You Beautiful as part of the show at Wembley stadium.

The loved-up couple sat in the same box as Harry’s family, who they were seen socialising with.
As well as singing, Harry has turned his talents to design by collaborating with iconic Italian fashion house Gucci to create a ‘1970s pop bohemian’ new capsule collection.
The musician and actor, 28, joined forces with the luxury brand’s creative director Alessandro Michele to create a line named HA HA HA – a play on the pair’s initials, which debuted in Milan and will arrive in stores in October.
